Wireless Android Auto - Error with VPN

I had this on my Android phone and activated. When I went to use Android Auto via Wireless, it wouldn’t connect, stating the Twingate VPN was blocking access.

As I use Android Auto every day, I temporarily disabled Twingate.
Has anyone had this issue, and if so, how did you correct it?

Thank you,

Hey Tom,

Unfortunately the issue you’re encountering is not a Twingate specific issue, but an Android Auto specific issue.

The AA application will throw that particular error (error 21) if it detects any sort of VPN in use on the device, regardless of whether or not it would actually affect AA traffic, and display the error/refuse to start.

Because Twingate makes use of the VPN framework within Android to facilitate the connections to Twingate resources, it is detected as a VPN and therefore will cause the flag to be raised.

As you have discovered, logging out of Twingate while in your vehicle is currently the only way to resolve the conflict and allow AA to connect wirelessly.

I apologize for the inconvenience.
